R2D2 is without question the most lovable droid of all. Wall-E, Baymax and Johnny Five from Short Circuit will have their followers but without little old R2 they wouldn't be software much less cute hardware.

To prove that the concept of R2D2-ness is as infinite and varied as the cosmos the folks over at Sideshow Collectibles (the company that makes all those sci-fi, Marvel and DC action statues that cost hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars) commissioned over 90 artist to re-imagine the astromech droid in new and wonderful ways.

The results of the 'R2-ME2 project' easily display that not only can R2D2 easily morph into other characters from the Star Wars Universe but those from other cinematic universes as well.

The first 50 were released and all of them are quite impressive. More will follow daily. Follow all the new releases on Twitter at
